2014 Year in Review

In 2013, I became the U.S. Representative for the newly reconfigured 2nd Congressional District, consisting of 63 cities and towns. Since then, I have had the opportunity to learn from many of you as I have visited communities across the district. 

As we begin the 114th Congress, I want to share some of the highlights of my office’s work over the last year.

2014 Farm Tour

In August, I organized a three-day, district-wide farm tour that included 20 stops at local producers, co-op markets, and food distribution centers. I was happy that U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Edward Avalos, MA Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Maeve Vallely Bartlett, and MA Commissioner of Agriculture Greg Watson were able to accompany me on the tour.
